Skelwith, Tilberthwaite, Little Langdale

Day 2 of our tour was supposed to be flat day but overall we climbed 2300 plus feet!

We started from base and our first objectives were Skelwith Force and then Colwith Force before heading south west to High Tilberthwaite. From here we headed north into Little Langdale and back to base via Elterwater.

Route

In Tilberthwaite we came across a school party who were being instructed in the art of ghyll scrambling. Andy and I suggested to the “Navigator” that instruction on outdoors skills should form part of each trip. We may have to wait a long time!
